High quality glass5 Posted by: from: New York, NY on Fantastic lens from Nikon. I got this to take pictures at my son's hockey games. This lens is fantastic, highly effective in low light and fast. I use it with a Nikon D800. It is a bit bulky and you should use it with a monopod or tripod to avoid the lens shake.

    Product Features

    Compatible with a variety of Nikon DSLR cameras

    Works with any Nikon FX or DX-format DSLR camera with an F-bayonet mount. Also compatible with most Nikon 35mm SLR cameras.

    Telephoto zoom lens provides detailed photos from a distance

    Throw backgrounds out of focus, grab detail and capture vivid close-up shots of distant subjects.

    70–200mm focal length

    This versatile, long-range zoom lens covers a broad range, enabling you to capture the perfect image from various distances.

    f/2.8 maximum aperture

    Provides clear landscape images and beautiful distance shots even in low-light situations, including indoor settings and on overcast days.

    Vibration Reduction II image stabilization

    Allows you to shoot at shutter speeds up to 3.5 stops slower without image blur. Ensures dramatically sharp still images and HD video capture, even for handheld shooting.

    SWM (Silent Wave Motor) ensures smooth, precise focusing

    Utilizes ultrasound vibrations to focus the lens, resulting in smooth, silent and precise autofocusing.

    ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass for superior image quality

    Effectively corrects chromatic aberration for optimum lens performance.

    M/A focusing mode

    Allows you to switch from manual to automatic with virtually no lag time, by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens.

    Internal Focus for fast, smooth autofocusing

    Allows for a more compact, lightweight construction and a closer focusing distance without changes in the lens barrel length.

    Advanced lens coatings for improved optics

    Nano Crystal Coat antireflective coating produces fine, clear images even under bright sunlight or indoor spotlights. Nikon Super Integrated Coating minimizes ghosting and flare.

    4.6' minimum focusing distance
